Empowerment Weekend Details

This weekend is designed for those who wish to explore the OULA experience in detail, for those seeking a deeper connection to themselves and their community through music and movement, and for those wanting to be future guides in OULA – whether as phenomenal participants or as instructors.

During this weekend, not only will you learn more about OULA, but you will learn to harness your authenticity, allowing you to live your most amazing life- in and out of the studio. Through two days of dancing, laughing, sharing, and breaking barriers, you will leave feeling invigorated and inspired.

Who This Weekend Is For:

Anyone! No Oula experience necessary to benefit from this weekend. You will also be joined by those who are seeking to become certified OULA instructors. If at any point during this weekend you decide you would like to become an instructor, we are happy to accommodate.


Saturday 8:00am-6:00pm
Sunday 8:00am-4:00pm
(detailed schedule will be emailed the week before training)

The OULA Empowerment Weekend explores the following elements:

  • the philosophy and story of OULA and its creation and evolution
  • the OULA triangle- music, movement and authenticity
  • tools for learning choreography quickly and efficiently
  • how to be vulnerable in the studio and beyond for mind-body health
  • bravery and support in sharing our stories through the music and movement
  • the opportunity to lead a song to your peers


The space created over the weekend was so safe, empowering and loving that I feel like I’ve been to a spiritual retreat, only now I have the opportunity to teach! Even if I don’t teach, my love for OULA is completely over the top now. It was so much fun to learn all of the intricacies and the noble intentions within the design of the class that make it so great. I wouldn’t miss it for the world!

OULA has re-ignited a spark within me that I thought I lost forever, a joy I have not experienced in a long time. I fell even more in love with it after going to the training and it has added a whole new layer of complexity to OULA that has made me appreciate it even more.

If you’ve ever even THOUGHT about this…DO IT!!! It gives you an insight not only into OULA, but also yourself! We are capable of so much more than we give ourselves credit for and this experience helps bring that out.

What an incredible weekend! So much growth, fun, and energy shared and exchanged with a phenomenal group of people. Oh yeah, and there was a lot of dancing, a whole lot. It was the joyful, soul-enriching and humanity-validating type of dancing that everyone could use more of. I absorbed it like a needed vitamin.

Society constantly tells us to be smaller, but what happens when you get bigger and take up more space, how does that feel? Well, it feels amazing and empowering. I really think this format is the secret to world peace — this experience made 10 people who were total strangers two days ago share some of the deepest feelings in their hearts. It is truly incredible how connected I feel.
